Rainy weather may seem to occur year-round for some Pacific Northwest pet owners. For dogs who spend a lot of time outdoors, here is a pet care tip to make sure he or she stays comfortable on rainy days.
Keep your dog’s bedding dry:
There is nothing better than having a warm, dry bed to sleep in during the rainy season. If your dog is used to spending time on the terrace or balcony, a covered resting area with dry bedding should be provided. All food or drinking bowls should be covered as well. During the rainy season, any surface gets cold, and this could harm your dog’s joints. The bedding should be changed frequently to prevent bacteria from accumulating.
